The 2019 ACMs are almost here! This year's show kicks off on April 7, and we can't wait to see what our favorite country celebs—including Carrie Underwood, newlywed Miranda Lambert, and longtime host Reba McEntire—decide to wear. In honor of the 54th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, let's take a look back at some of the most show-stopping red carpet dresses of all time.
Reba first turned heads in this bold, low-cut dress during the CMA Awards in 1993. We all saw proof of her ageless beauty when she donned the statement piece again last year.
Country's cutest couple knows how to make an entrance—and Faith knows how to transform a little black dress into an iconic trend-setting statement.
The days when Taylor was purely a country star seem so far behind us. But we can never forget this gold-and-white gown that stole the show in 2012.
Nicole always shows up to support her husband—and always does so in style. This abstract sheer gown is a long-running favorite, and Keith doesn't look too shabby, either!
Who can forget Shania's sultry leopard look that's reminiscent of her music video, ?
Our favorite Voice coach arrived on the scene in the early 2000s looking as fierce as ever. Check out that stare!
Kacey and Ruston were all smiles when they hit the carpet as a couple. Kacey, who's known for her over-the-top ensembles, sported a bow-tie choker and a lacy, floral dress.
Miranda walked this carpet with Anderson. They were together for over two years before splitting in 2018. Shortly after, Miranda began dating now ex Evan Felker.
Pretty in purple! The 16-time host of the ACM Awards stepped out in a regal, floor-length frock that seems like a perfect fit for Reba. After all, she is country royalty!
This photo may have been taken 10 years ago, but Tim and Faith—and their outfits—remain as timeless as ever. The couple both sported navy looks here, and it's giving us a case of the blues in the best possible way.
Taylor earned a "Reputation" for being the best-dressed artist at the 2013 ACM Awards. She complemented her shimmering gold gown with a low ponytail and smokey eyes.
Now this is a little black dress! Shania stole the show with this strapless flowy number, complete with knee-high boots.
The "My Church" singer took a page out of Reba's book and donned a multicolor purple stunner. A metallic clutch and studded shoes lent the soft look a little edge.
Props to Kelsea: She managed to make a classic ballgown memorable. We love the subtle pattern and pop of color she brought to the carpet this year.
Maren returned to the ACMs with some new eye candy in tow: Her husband, Ryan! Maren swapped purple for a teal blue, which matched Ryan's plaid suit perfectly.
Kelsea amped up her aesthetic when she came back to the ACMs in 2018 with husband Morgan Evans by her side. Her sheer white gown included lots of details on the bodice and a slit that she rocked with confidence.
Martina decided to leave the comforts of her stunning Nashville home behind and head to Vegas to celebrate country's big night. She hit the carpet in a form-fitting black number with a gold belt.
Thomas and Lauren are one of our favorite couples, but Lauren is one of our favorite style icons, too. She looks like she appeared straight out of the 20s in this Gatsby-inspired gown.
Jason and Brittany's two children, Memphis and newborn Navy, hadn't appeared on the scene when the couple posed for this picture. Brittany practically glowed in this black-and-gold getup.
The Sugarland star took a big fashion risk with this high-necked red number—and it totally paid off.
